Today, Wammer has released their new music hub app for Samsung devices (that run Tizen) onto the Galaxy Apps Store, which currently supports the Samsung Gear S2 and Gear S3, with Gear Fit 2 support on the way.
The idea behind the music hub is that you are able to connect your favourite music services to this central location and be able to access all your music tracks from your wearable device. There was a fairly short Beta trial of the software, which had a fantastic response, and now the app is now ready for prime time. At the moment the app can only connect to Spotify but more music services are on their way.
In order to use Spotify with offline support you need a Premium account. The company is currently doing an offer for 3 months for £0.99. if you Interested then sign-up now as there are only 3 days left.
The app is available to download today, but it might take it a slight while showing up in certain markets. If you have no luck searching for it then you might find it by going into Category -> Entertainment and then by selecting the New tab.
